Who is this for ?
For everyone, like all Maranatha Conversion pilgrimages, but perhaps especially, for those who:
- sont attirés par le surnaturel,
- seek to enter the mystery of the Invisible,
- do not hesitate to pray novenas, to make pilgrimages,
- are not ashamed to have a child’s faith …
“The Holy Council commits at the same time all the sons of the Church to make a great deal of the practices and exercises of piety towards her, which the Magisterium has recommended over the centuries /…/ May the faithful remember that a true devotion does not consist in a sterile and ephemeral movement of sensibility, any more than in vain credulity, true devotion proceeds from the true faith, which leads us to recognize the eminent dignity of the Mother of God, and impels us to to love this Mother with a filial love, and to pursue the imitation of Her virtues “. (Vatican II, Lumen Gentium § 67)
Lord, give me the intelligence to love,
and love to understand!
Thus, simple believers and theologians will explain the importance of these devotions and the importance of the synergy between “intelligence of faith” and “expression of faith.” Contemporary witnesses / mystics will explain us what they are experiencing, the beauty of their experience, but also the pain of not always being understood by their loved ones, or by some members of the Church who are uncertain about the reality of their lives, their experiences.

Whoever you are, if the theme “Prayer for the healing of humanity, prayer for the healing of the human heart” entices you, come join us!
Join us for intense times of prayer – and also of fasting – for the healing of humanity and for the healing of the human heart.
Times of exchanges will be held with men and women committed to peace and coming from different religious traditions. They will tell us how they are working and how we could reach them and perhaps help them.
Come and discover the major spiritual destinations of Bosnia and Herzegovina: Medjugorje, Mostar, Sarajevo…
Come and spend an intense day in the heart of Sarajevo/Bosnia, where World War I began in 1914 and where World Peace I could start…
If, together, we all hit the road,
If we refuse to admit defeat from the outset,
If we decide that from now on,
we will partner with Heaven for a better world,
Everything will become possible.
Nothing is impossible to God and He listens to our prayers.
If we are many, if our hearts are united in the same process of Prayer,
and of fasting, for the sake of peace, for the healing of humanity and of mankind’s heart,
If we humbly put our lives in the hands of the Lord,
We can be certain that God will hear us,
That he will fulfill our prayers…
In Pontmain, France, in 1871, the Virgin Mary said:: “Oh! Do pray my children. God will answer you very soon. My Son lets his heart be touched!”
